Academic developers as drivers of change: Centering voices for learning
Session Time and Location
Within many higher education institutions, Western perspectives guide how knowledge is produced and shared. Curriculum transformation can potentially create a more balanced worldview or a centering of more voices. Online and Blended Learning has been lauded as offering possibilities for transformation. Academic Developers are poised to play a critical role in positioning OBL as a strategic point for change. Drawing on perspectives on curriculum decolonising and on instructional design frameworks, this session engages participants in an interrogation of the role of Academic Developers in stimulating/supporting transformation through re-visioning the application of alternative design frameworks to online and blended learning.
